Cancellation of the Constellation Program Will Benefit the American Space Program

- NASA has been in the business of sending men and materials into space for more than fifty years. With the introduction of the space shuttle in 1980, however, it has essentially become a transport and shipping company rather than an organization responsible for developing modern technologies to take Americans to Mars and beyond. The space shuttle was a tremendous technological achievement that enabled NASA to send millions of tons of cargo and equipment into low Earth obit, but its successor, the Constellation Program, which relies on rockets and crew capsules much like NASA’s early space programs, represents a step backward in space exploration vehicle design (“Propulsion Systems”, 2003)....   [tags: Space Exploration ]

The Taming of the Shrew and Romeo and Juliet

- While The Taming of The Shrew played in theaters in the spring of 1967, the Summer of Love was about to explode in San Francisco and London, signifying the height of the hippie, counter-culture movement.

In addition to anti-war protests, sexual exploration was another hallmark of this young generation, to which Romeo and Juliet was the perfect metaphor.
